I’m not surprised when Sallie the lab tech calls with this new hCG number: 31.

I’m not surprised, but my heart still breaks, because a number that low, a number not the double of the last, 59, even in the face of conception, healthy endometrial lining and a solid progesterone count can only mean one thing and that is this: that this pregnancy will not be viable.

And it is not. By the evening, miscarriage begins.
